Only 1 slight problem with the cunning plan mate - as I understand it we are going Super 8 route in our division next year - so it sounds like 14 games to start with 7 home and 7 away - but who gets who and where??
I should have realised, of course, it's the R.F.L. we're on about! Never anything simple and straight forward. Fingers crossed then!
Toulouse will be part of a 15-team league 1 next season and will also enter the Challenge Cup at the third-round stage.
If that's correct Shades that's one consolation I was looking forward to next season when we missed out on promotion this season. A trip to Toulouse! Nothing against Oldham and such like but it should make a nice change. If it's as good a trip as we had to Perpignan a couple of years back that'll do me fine. I'd hope for a bit better scoreline of course!
Gutted, however firstly, immense efforts by the lads today and fourth position is very credible given off field antics this season at the club.
Now for today's showing.....
Simply beaten by a smarter team today, missing 4 conversions(3 easy ones) has been a problem all season, why haven't we had someone practising kicks all week, then the forward pass from Dent inside to Minikin when 2 on 1 just not good enough and should have been a walk-in.
Swinton looked the far more organised side from the start with plenty of dummy runners, a great fullback and a pair of halves who were far better than ours and that's what told in the end, their sets of six were simply better than ours all 2nd half. More yardage and smarter use of the ball.
Why don't our forwards run on to the ball at pace? too many static forwards receiving balls then trying to make ground and no reverse angled running? Presley and Walker just don't do it for me I'm afraid.
I think we need a recognised No.1, 6, 7 and a line busting prop with experience, hang onto some these lads as well and we'll be ok next season.
We have a recognised no.1 Andy but unfortunately he was sat with us in the stand with his leg brace on due to the bust cruciate he received a few weeks back. As for Presley, man of the match for me, and a lot of other people too judging by the comments on here and on the Swinton site. I'll go along with you re the 7 jersey.
Actually, your bit about "Walker" has me wondering a bit about the rest of your post.
